The Book of the Right Way by Laozi – 71

71

He who, knowing, does not know that he knows not the higher knowledge, is defective.

Truly, because the man who is defective does not know that he is defective, he is defective.

Because the sage knows his defects to be defects, therefore he is not defective.

Truly, the man who knows his defects to be defects is not defective.

老 子:  「道 德 經」 :  第 七 十 一 章

    知 不 知 , 尚 矣 ﹔ 不 知 知 , 病 也 。

聖 人 不 病 , 以 其 病 病 。

夫 唯 病 病 , 是 以 不 病 。
